What are the basics and what are the super powers? There are literally thousands of opportunities out there to make money online and affiliate marketing is the most popular way for people to earn a living online.
Affiliate marketing is when you promote someone else’s product and earn a commission off each sale, when you have become successful. There are many ways you can promote products and you must find something that fits you and you will do it. You need to find out what products are popular and sell well online, which products you should promote, what products to avoid promoting, what products to stick with and many other important questions.
Some benefits of affiliate marketing is that you get to work from wherever you want, whenever you want and most importantly, you can work from almost anywhere because the Internet connects everyone. This means that you can literally work from your bedroom while your family is sleeping, you can work from your lunch break whilst your children are at school and the same with if you work from the beach, it really is possible.
There are loads of affiliate programs out there to promote products. Some might be free to join and some might require you to pay a monthly fee. If you decide to promote something that is free to join, then you must spend a great deal of time researching the products and the companies to promote it. This is because not all companies are legitimate and as soon as you find one that seems legitimate you must research the company to ensure they do not have a history of stealing affiliate commissions from you. There are free to join affiliate programs out there, whilst some might require you to pay a monthly fee, some might pay you up front and some might charge a small fee for this service.
If you decide to go the paid route, you must first determine the cost of the products you want to promote, the products are a mix of free and paid. The free products will be an eBook or video of some sort, whilst the paid products will be some kind of software or device, some of the paid products are truly amazing. I personally recommend the paid products, but you can also find great results from the free products too.
* Do not choose something just because it is free, do some due diligence and research before you jump into something because the results can be absolutely incredible, but do choose wisely because, some products will steal your commissions whilst some will greatly increase your commissions.
It is always a good idea to choose a product or service that has a high commission rate, and not much risk. For example, for every 100 clicks on your ad, you get 25 sales and for each 100 clicks you send to a website, you get 25 clicks and such. These numbers can give you a tremendous income, whilst for the products that only pay you with a percentage of sales, you will make far less sales and get far less commission. If you’re a newbie then I recommend you choose the highest commission rate products.
In order to give you an example, let’s say that you try and promote a product that only pays out $1 for each 100 clicks, so 1000 clicks you get 1000 sales and 1000 clicks you get 1000 clicks, so only 1000 clicks you get sales from and 1000 clicks you send to the website and get no sales. In this example, you can see that the product is far far below your standards and you’ll never make much money. But suppose you try and promote the same product with products that pay $5 per 1000 clicks, so 1000 clicks you get 1000 sales and 1000 clicks you get 1000 clicks, and such you can actually make a great deal more money because you’re targeting more and more people, but the sales that are made are much smaller.
So to be a success you need to find products that pay out high commission rates, pay out a lot of clicks and give you many sales. The higher the commission rate, the better the sales you’re going to get, because more sales equals more money for you, whilst less sales means less money for the product owner.
I recommend you choose something that gives you a lot of clicks, and you can promote really hard when you start out. You should be able to promote the product effectively without any issues and make a lot of money. The product should have a high average sale price so you can make money too. If the product sells for $10 and you make a sale, you make $10 per sale, if the product sells for $200 you make $200 per sale and so on.
The sales percentages are also important. You’ll want to choose a product that has a sales percentage that you can achieve with out too much work. It should be high enough that you don’t have to work too hard to make sales but low enough that it doesn’t take too much time to make one sale. Some products is have a sales percentage of over 50% and this is enough for you to make money so that you don’t have to work as hard to make one sale, but it should be lower than that.
The last thing that I want to talk about is you should pick the products that give you marketing support and resources that you can use to promote the product. Some products give you tools that help you promote the product, some give you marketing resources that help you to make sales.
So, you should always check out the sales page of a product before you decide to promote it. If you see a product that has a bad sales page you should think twice before you promote it. It’s a bad sales page that can cause you to make low sales, and lower sales means less money for you. There are some websites that give you marketing tools and marketing support that can help you make lots of sales and improve your conversions and make tons of money. So, choose your products wisely and don’t rush into things and you’ll succeed in internet marketing.
